News A new report might explain why gas prices in Timmins are so high SHARE ON: Taylor Ablett, staff Thursday, Nov. 10th, 2016 Photo: Supplied Timmins could be getting some answers when it comes to the price of gas in the city. The Ontario Energy Board is going to be looking into the way prices are set across the province. This comes on request from the Minister of Energy, Glenn Thibeault. The OEB will bring a report to Queen’s Park looking at the extent and causes of price variations, how Ontario compares with other markets, and the information available to consumers. Thibeault says gas prices are a major issue for Ontario consumers, and he has heard clearly that the province needs to look into the issue.
